Transmission relearn

Just to clarify, every time the power level is changed, need to do a relearn? Asking for a friend.

From my understanding yes. Unless you love going through transmissions.

Are you talking about flashing in a new tune or changing levels with sotf switch?

No. Only when you flash your ecm with a new tune. When you turn knob it’s advised to go easy but you don’t have to do a full fledged relearn.

Not what I was told by Frank/Tom at RevMax. My understanding was that you had to do a relearn each time you changed tunes.

Ofcourse because they’re covering their rear ends. Totally understand. Fact is your CVI values don’t reset. And if your driving patterns don’t change and your values don’t reset then you’ll be fine. But don’t go switching from 1 to 5 and then tearing a$$ everywhere. You don’t have to do a full blown relearn however your transmission will adapt to new power levels if your driving patterns change.

I know it sounds confusing like I’m saying the same thing.

Thereís a difference between changing tunes and changing power levels within a tune. Change power levels- no relearn. Have a new tune written and flash it in- relearn.

Thank you all for the information. It was going to be really annoying if everytime I went to the stock tune to pull my camper I would need to do a relearn. It makes sense that if you re-flash a relearn is required. I hope the way I did the relearn will be sufficient. I have put 200 miles on the truck since tuning. I kept the throttle below 40% for over 100 miles. But I do live 9 miles outside of town, so it wasn’t all stop and go but I would slow down and let the trans down shift on the trips to town. Hopefully I’ll be ok. Again thank you all.

Ah, changing power levels is changing the tune....

I asked my tune provider and he said I do not have to do a relearn when switching power levels.

But if you don't take it easy and drive sensible allowing your transmission to relearn the extra power as nick00less mentioned you'll be back here like everyone else proclaiming the 68rfe is junk when in fact 99% of the time its owner/operator induced.

The transmission relearns as you drive it's just you don't need to do a full relearn procedure.
